A sole survivor tells of the twisty events leading up to a horrific gun battle on a boat, which began when five criminals met at a seemingly random police lineup.
The film was promoted by a teaser campaign with the tagline, "Who is Keyzer Soze?"
How you doing Keaton?
Keaton: I can't feel my legs... Keyser.
(At around 34 mins) When one of the guys, robbing the corrupt cops, wearing pantie hose on his head and sitting in the driver seat of the white panel van looks back and says "hurry up" and his mouth is not moving.
The editor, John Ottman, edited the movie on film. He felt that all the editing done electronically at the time was horrible because all the good editors were still working on film (which is much more difficult). Because of this he thought about putting "Edited on a piece of s*** Steenbeck" at the end of the credits, but instead settled for the more subtle line "Edited on film." Tim Robbins was directing 'Dead Man Walking' at the time and heard about John's idea, which sparked that film's credit ending of "This film was edited on old machines."
The Australian television version left the line-up scene unedited for language. However, all other scenes with strong language, such as McManus's call for payback at the discovery of Finster's body, were shortened or removed.
